Brief Summary:
This study is being conducted to evaluate the safety profile and the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of TAK-901 in adult patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma. This study will help to identify the recommended phase 2 dose and infusion duration, and describe the pharmacokinetics of TAK-901.

Experimental: TAK-901 Arm Drug: TAK-901

This study consists of three sequential parts.

Part 1: Escalating doses of TAK-901 will be administered via IV infusion over a 3-hour period on Days 1, 4, 8, 11, 15, and 18 of each 28-day cycle.

Part 2: Escalating doses of TAK-901 (starting at one-third of the dose identified as the MTD in Part 1) will be administered as a 1-hour infusion on Days 1, 4, 8, 11, 15, and 18 of each 28-day cycle.

Part 3: TAK-901 will be administered to approximately 20 patients using the dose identified as the MTD in the escalation phase. The infusion duration of TAK-901 will be determined after completion of Part 2.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To identify the MTD of TAK-901 administered as either a 3-hour or 1-hour infusion. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  2. To adaptively adjust the estimate of the MTD of TAK-901 from the escalation phase in an expansion cohort of subjects. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of TAK-901 and its primary metabolite (M-I). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  2. To evaluate disease response. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  3. To investigate the effect of TAK-901 on tumor proliferation. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
